    Best Acronym Contest Voting Poll
    Alright, I can't decide on the best one so its up for a vote. I've "narrowed" the selection but it's still a tough.

    You can vote for more than one, but not more than once - Voting will end 1/7/07, the winners will finally be announced on Monday 1/8/07.

    I voted for:
    affiliate braintrust enabling success through worldwide ecommerce businesses

    but, if you are really going to use it, you might change "affiliate" to just "a". That way you include all of the great merchants and vendors that add value here as well.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Doh! I guess since none of mine are up there, I'm out of the running.
    Oh well, ya win some, ya lose some. I voted for #45. That was one of Rhea's, wasn't it? I like the ", baby!" at the end... gives it attitude.

    Good luck, all of you who are still contenders!!

    Not to sway any votes (it's not one of my submissions...darn), but I thought "Affiliate Business Essentials Shared Together With Entertaining Banter" best described both the serious and lighter side of ABW. I also thought it was one of the easiest to say.

    Don't think you can win the big prize if I'm reading it right:

    "Contest Ends 12/31/06 Winner to be announced 1/2/06, open to all ABW members, if a merchant or OPM wins, the 50GBs will be given to a random affiliate entrant and they will receive $100 via paypal instead of only $50."

    I wanted to add a few added rules/clarifications:

    Only one prize per entrant - Even though multiple entries per member were eligible, only the top winning entry will be given a prize, the next closest winner will win the next level prize that the multiple entry member would have also won.

    In the event of a tie in a prize slot, I (meaning me, Haiko) will decide who wins for that prize slot.

    Voting ends 1:07 pm GMT -4 hours on 1/07/07
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Oops - guess that one wasn't a choice - but it's what came to mind when I thought about a short acronym that describes what we do here.

    I think ABW should just be known as ABW.
    Doesn't have to mean anything and ABW already have its branding, which is ABW

    if i must pick...

    I meant a 2007 Russian wall calendar for each of the top three winners, Haiko [original post]. So the first prize, the second prize and the third one -- all get have a calendar from Geno in them (yes, they are sold at RL, but as prizes in this contest they are provided solely by AM Navigator).

    "Advocating Best E-commerce Standards To Web Entrepreneur Businesses"
    Sounds great to me and should remind each of us of what ABW is about.
    Do we have a winner?

    With 17 votes it seems Leeann is a winner.
    Waiting for Haiko to confirm the vote.
